Surprise! Krallice Release Mass Cathexis, Their First New Full-Length in Three Years
Well well well, isn’t this a nice surprise! Krallice — the mind-bending black metal band featuring Colin Marston (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Behold… the Arctopus, etc.), Mick Barr (Orthrelm, Encenathrakh, Ocrilim, etc.), Lev Weinstein (Bloody Panda, Anicon, Coral Cross, etc.), and Nicholas McMaster (Geryon) — have today released a new album, Mass Cathexis. It’s their first full-length since 2017’s Go Be Forgotten, and their first time releasing new music since last year’s EP, Wolf.
In addition to the four core musicians, the album also features vocals by Neurosis’ Dave Edwardson.
I’m just listening to the album for the first time myself as I type this, but so far, it’s pretty goddamn great. Which is about as shocking as the fact that the sun came up this morning. On their worst day, Krallice are still better than, like, anyone else.
Mass Cathexis is out now; you can stream it below. It’s available digitally on the Krallice Bandcamp page, and is available on CD and cassette via the band’s Hathenter imprint; you can pre-order those on the Bandcamp page as well. Gilead Media is putting out a vinyl edition, which you can order here.
